barack obama of all people, peter works stand up and say hey you know what? let's respect state rights in this area and i hope some other states will do the same thing colorado and washington did. >> it wasn't that long ago we had our friend from normal here. barack obama has been tougher on marijuana users than any other. >> bill: it doesn't make sense to us. in the last 11 months, the obama administration has shut down over 400 medical marijuana dispensaries. in colorado and washington state, it is not just medical marijuana that's on the ballot, it is recreational use period. but the obama administration has shut down over 400 medical marijuana dispensaries, more than in the entire eight years under george w. bush. so it is just insane and i'm really disappointed that the white house was willing to say the people of colorado and washington state have spoken, so be it. 1-866-55-press. if you want to get a comment in about pot as well, always welcome. on the my2k, peter what's happening on the social network? >> we'll start in the chat room. current.com/billpress. you can chat with fe

economy. this comes the month after the election. right? >> right. >> if this had come before the election. whoa, obama would have won. >> he is going to win reelection now that these numbers are out. >> if jack welch is apoplectic about the other number what would he have thought about this? how would mitt romney spin this as bad news? he would find some way. >> one thing, you mentioned hurricane sandy, in the labor department's numbers they released, they did mention hurricane sandy did not substantively impact jobs data. they pointed that out. >> that shows a lot of economists don't have a clue what they are talking about. >> get out. >> nice to have been working with you. that was the expectation. >> i understand where that would come from. you know there was tremendous dislocates. a lot of people could not get to work. right? mayor their jobs maybe didn't exist any more. all of those businesses along the coast didn't just close their door for a day or two. they were wiped out. >> a lot just didn't hire people but actually laid people off. >> right. business people weren't shopping. stores and that kind
